Monday, April 26th, 2010

healthy eatingAccording to modern medical understanding of health has 3 main components: rational nutrition, physical activity and rational refusal of smoking. If one adheres to these principles, the data from the statistics show that they decreased by 2-3 times the risk of cardiovascular and cancer, which today are a major cause of premature death. Of course, in terms of overweight, there may be genetically determined disorder of fat metabolism, but it occurs earlier and is immediately noticeable. In most people, obesity is a consequence of Eating Disorders. All extreme diets that help overthrow the weight is not balanced and can be implemented quickly. However, this rule means a momentary effect. Most main meals at a reasonable approach. Health is primarily a sense of measure. Here are 10 steps that are proposed by scientists of our healthy eating. They had nothing sensational – they simply state the principles to which they must adhere to normalize weight and maintain their health longer possible.
Step 1: Healthy balanced diet should be based on a variety of products, mainly from vegetable rather than animal origin. There is no product that can provide our bodies all the necessary substances. The only exception is breast milk, which replaces the child until at least 6 months all other products. Therefore, nutrition must be as diverse. Observance of special diets is recommended only on a recommendation from a specialist.
Step 2: Bread, pasta dishes and potatoes should be eaten several times per day. Half the daily amount used, food must be covered by these products. Scientists do not agree that they are only a source of energy and carbohydrates. They also contain many other substances necessary for health: dietary fiber, mineral compounds, vitamins of group B and C. It is wrong and the opinion that these products contribute to the accumulation of fat. Indeed, the energy content of starch is much less than the same amount of fat or alcohol. Experts recommend to be used more bread, preferably whole-grain or black.

Friday, February 19th, 2010

Antioxidants are natural or nature identical compounds which prevent oxidation of the active compounds in the cells of the body, which reduces the risk of developing various diseases, including related to the chemical, physical, radiological, bacteriological and other environmental factors. Is another interesting fact from the published research – that are equally useful and coffee with and without caffeine. According to statistics daily average use grown-up 1299 mg antioxidants from coffee (drank an average of 1.64 cups of coffee). His closest “rival” is tea in one cup of which contains 294 mg, followed by bananas (76 mg), mature beans (72 mg) and maize (48 mg).

Coffee CupIf you invite to abandon coffee and tea to go, so do not rush to give up your favorite morning habit. A series of scientific observations argued that most people one cup of coffee a day is actually really useful.

U.S. researchers observed more than 27 thousand people over 15 years, consider that even 3 cups of coffee a day reduce the risk of heart problems. Another study showed that if one can speak of injury, it should refer to other beverages containing caffeine. According to most scientific opinions protective effect of coffee is probably due to the antioxidants and other components in coffee beans.
2. Coffee reduces risk of certain cancers

Point of this dispute was set in 2007 when the scientific community finally recognized (based on results from 66 studies) that the coffee itself is not a carcinogen. Rather, these are cigarettes – orbiting a normal cup of coffee. Currently, even some scientists now think the contrary – that coffee has a protective effect against certain cancers. Japanese scientists for example, aggregated data on more than 90 thousand people argue that people who regularly drink coffee to 2-3 cups a day, suffer less from cancer of the liver.

Fruits feedingUnhealthy diet leads to a lack of energy, constant fatigue and accumulation of toxins. Other factors that lower energy are: dehydration, overeating, irregular meals, caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, stress and sleepless. Our body needs foods that accelerate metabolism and maintain steady, as blood sugar and energy. By adding a full sleep and increased physical activity, you will immediately regain its vitality. At the beginning fitness will make you tired, but will gradually start to feel more energetic because of the flow of endorphins which are released from the body during exercise. Although energy is obtained also from proteins and fats, the majority coming from carbohydrates. They are more easily converted into glucose – the fuel used for energy. But no sense just to increase carbohydrates to increase your energy, as this will affect blood sugar levels. Eat at regular intervals, combining protein with carbohydrates and fats at every meal. This will maintain stable blood sugar by slowing the digestive process, will allow your body to “burn” carbohydrates as fuel and to procure the necessary substances from other foods. The pace at which carbohydrate foods release glucose in blood is measured by glycemic index (GI) and influences the level of energy. Glycemic index classification of foods high hydrate from 0 to 100. The higher is the GI, the faster your blood sugar rises. Foods with low GI (cereals – brown rice, oats, rye, whole grains, legumes, yogurt, raw fruits and vegetables) released its sugars more slowly and have to draw a large part of our diet. With high GI foods are low in fiber, processed sugar products, which consist of highly digestible sugars – candy, chocolate, biscuits, honey, sweetened cornflakes, dried fruit, white bread and white rice.
